Experience the thrill of altitude in New England’s High Country

Spectacular waterfalls, gorges, world-heritage national parks, cool-climate vineyards and a fascinating and diverse cultural heritage. Canyoning, mountain biking, birdwatching, trout fishing and other outdoor adventures take on an exciting new dimension up high. And you’ll be delighted all over again when you come inside to discover our galleries, museums, fine food and wine.

Come up and see us soon.

At around 1000 metres above sea level, New England’s High Country offers visitors a truly evocative and unique experience with four distinct seasons. The region shares a rich history and stunning natural environment. Where else can you experience World Heritage wilderness in the morning and indulge in the sophistication of world-class galleries and vineyards in the afternoon?

Imagine a place where the geology and biodiversity is unique, where you can climb giant rock formations, stroll through rainforests, encounter rare wildlife, watch powerful waterfalls, camp in the wilderness, paddle wild rivers, and find endless breathtaking views. This is all part of the New England High Country experience – there are hundreds of thousands of hectares of national parks and state forests to explore.

Experience the highs.
